Come tomorrow, I plan to order a laser engraver plus a jig that will enable me to engrave the pen a full 360 degrees. Can’t wait until I can start offering the engraving.


Ever heard of Snakewood? It’s an exotic hardwood, I had to sharpen my tools 4 times making this, from South America that gets its name from the snake like markings it has.

As you can see, they make very beautiful pens. At the moment, I only have one made in the slimline style. The link to it is below

As you can see below, I’ve added the following options to the pens. The woods and Acrylics listed below is just the start of new options one can order. A few have not yet been added for I don’t have examples of them made up yet that would show off the blank once it was made. But, remember I’m adding more every month.

 

 

I’m also working making Wizard Wands. Below is my first one made from Maple and stained with a walnut stain to give it an Antiqued, weathered look.


Cheeto Mussolini has unveiled his proposed budget, a budget that fucks up 99% of the people in this country if it’s passed. Gone are the funds for PBS, the NIH, NEA, Meals on Wheels as well as the free lunch program in public schools. The Peace Corp would also be defunded. The State Department budget would be slashed by 50%, the EPA by 31% and the money to clean up the great lakes by 99%.

But never fear, Defense would get $54 Billion more, the rich would get even more tax cuts and don’t forget the wall on the Mexican boarder, a wall the army corp of engineers says would be damn near impossible to build.

Oh, and if you have sons that are draft age, kiss them goodbye for he’s determined to start a war with North Korea and by extension, possibly with China.

Is this the America you want? An America that lets school kids, the old and severely disabled go hungry?

An America that allows on of the biggest sources of fresh water become undrinkable?

An America that turns it’s back on Medical Research, the arts promotes war?

Wake up people, the Cheeto Mussolini cares not one damn thing about you. He will be the downfall of this country unless you take a stand.

RAISE UP, RESIST!!


The CBO has issued their report, “Trumpcare” with strip 14 million of their insurance within a year. Cost 24 million their insurance by 2026 & raise premiums by 25%. The trolls are jumping with joy, which just proves that they don’t give a shit if anyone else lives or dies as long as they themselves don’t. And yet, these same people claim that they’re “Christians”. Last time I read the new testament, I could have sworn that Jesus commanded people to care for the poor and the sick, and yet these morons seem to look over that, and would rather concentrate on people that are gay who Jesus said jack shit about. These same people, claim that this is a so-called “Christian Nation” and claim that they live by Christian beliefs while condemning refugees that simply want to get away from the bullets and bombs in a country that we ourselves destabilized. They also claim that there must be separation of church and state all the while demanding that the bible be taught in schools.

These are the morons that are now for the most part in charge of running the country, mainly because other morons voted for them because deep down they are fucking racist, bigoted assholes that if Jesus came back today would call him a socialist radical and have him deported for being an illegal alien. This is not America nor is it the American way. This is the ‘Merican Taliban/Isis that will not be satisfied until they make this country a “Christian” hellhole. These are the slimeballs that Trump and his kind draw out from under their rocks and feel right at home wearing all black shouting Sieg Heil and Hail Trump.

These people must be exposed and opposed at every turn. We must resist these warped minded morons that would destroy what this country has standed for for the past 241 years. They don’t care what the founders of this country wanted, for they believe fully the delusion that the founders like Jefferson were as much as a bigot as they are. And won’t open their eyes to the fact that Jefferson was one of the biggest liberals of his day as well as were the other founding fathers.

Resist


The CBO, the Congressional Budget Office, whose job it is is to figure out the impact that laws will have on people in this country has stated today that “Trumpcare” will cause 14 million people who gained health Insurance under the ACA to lose it within the first year of Trumpcare. When told this, Paul Ryan, the current speaker on the house said that that number didn’t bother him and that he was going forward with the plan. Of course it doesn’t bother him, he gets free healthcare for life and we pay for it!

And remember, that 14 million figure is just how many would lose their insurance within the first year, those on medicaid would slowly lose it between now and 2020. So the grand total would be closer to 18-20 million people that would lose insurance within the next 4 years!

Is this the “Change” you voted for? Is this what you really want? I can’t think of the morons name, but hes a Rethuglican in congress who said just the other day that “Poor people don’t want insurance” for “Jesus says it in the bible, that the poor will always be with us.” Just how in the fuck he gets that the poor or even that middle class do not what insurance from that bible quote I have no bloody idea. But this is the mentality that we have running the damn government.

An as for those so-called health tax credits, a tax credit is basicly a deduction. So my question is, if you don’t have the freaking money to begin with to afford the freaking insurance, what good is the fucking deduction do you?? And the deductions are only from $2,000-$4,000 depending of if it’s just you or if you have a family. Now if your paying say $600 a month or more in premiums, your still losing a freaking big chunk of money. And if you have one of these Health Savings accounts, you manage to save say $5,000 in it. but your hospital bill is $25,000-$30,000. Then what the fuck do you do? Who wants or can afford a $20,000+ deductible?

No, this shit has to be opposed and opposed big before Trump and his jackbooted thugs completely destroy this country!


Finished this last night, the first slimline done in a satin finish with an Olive wood body. This and the black finish I must admit are my favorites when it comes to using a mid to light colored wood.

 

There’s also this one, a skull pen done in some of the wood I had from the Great Dismal Swamp. This one will be given away soon on my Freaky Paranormal Facebook page. For details on how to enter, just go to the page and see the pinned post.


Below is a Polaris Pen using 200 year old wood that was harvested from the Great Dismal Swamp in Virginia. It was just added to the website. The asking price is $80 do to that fact that it does indeed use this wood and it comes with a certificate of Authenticity.
